He may not be a household name, but he does know how to get the job done, and with his fan favourite tag among Rabbitohs fans – they will all be pleased to know that Nathan Peats has re-signed with the club for the 2014 and 2015 NRL seasons.
Peats, who is still only 22, has played in 40 matches for the club since making his debut back in Rd Four of 2011 and has representative honours to his name – representing the Indigenous All-Stars in 2012 and 2013.
The club is very happy to have Peats on board, with coach Michael Maguire a fan of the way he conducts himself on the field and off the field as a player and a person.
â€œNathan is one of a number of South Sydney juniors in our ranks, and Iâ€™m pleased to see him earn another contract after all of the hard work he has put in over the past two years,â€ Coach Maguire said.
â€œHe led the way in everything throughout the pre-season and he has applied himself to everything, both on and off the field.
â€œâ€˜Peatsyâ€™ is an important part of our squad and itâ€™s great to see the Peats name continue to be part of the Club, following in his fatherâ€™s footsteps, Geordi Peats.
â€œHeâ€™s applying great pressure to the players in the starting line-up at the moment and he adds to the competitive nature for positions.
â€œIâ€™m really happy that heâ€™s staying on with us and I look forward to continuing our work together.â€
The man himself is just as happy to be staying at the club, excited that he gets to continue playing for the club he loves.
â€œItâ€™s great to be staying here at Souths for another two years,â€ Peats said.’
â€œIâ€™m a South Sydney junior and never wanted to play anywhere else.
â€œIâ€™m really enjoying playing under â€˜Madgeâ€™ (Coach Maguire) and Iâ€™ve bought into the culture heâ€™s instilled here at the Club.
â€œIâ€™m looking forward to more success at the Club and playing my part as we strive to win the Clubâ€™s next premiership.â€
